election wasn't enough. >> translator: dissolving parliament doesn't matter. we have come here because we want to restore the monarchy and the nation. dissolving parliament won't solve the country's problems. >> the protestors are backed by the opposition democrat party which has failed to win the last five elections. a trend that's likely to continue in the next vote. now, the people here say they want to eradicate the so-called regime of thaksin shinawatra, the former prime minister accused of abusing his power. the prime minister at the time that they were trying to force out was watsuwat can brother-in-law of thaksin shinn watt. he delivered another fiery speech in front of tens of thousands of supporters. and repeated his call for a reform committee to rub the country. >> this means that from now on, the people will appoint a people's prime minister and a people's government. from now on we'll have the people's council having the legislating, no longer the government which is no longer the in power. >> the interim government is in power and the protestors seem like they're settling i

the economy is going to do this year and next ahead of the election. >> yeah. i think the likelihood is that the economy will continue to grow at a 2% to 2.5% late next year. that's decent, but it's not stellar. given all they have said about reducing the deficit over the next few years, it leaves room for cutting taxes. i think what the uk needs is a rebalancing towards investment and exports. the government realizes this and i think as a consequence it's unlikely to do things to throw additional fuel on the fire of consumption. >> do you think the government is doing enough? are you expecting any measures, say, on planning tomorrow from the troika? would that have helped? we had construction pmis this week very strong, rising like a phoenix out of the ashes. but many suppliers saying the supply side of that market is still very, very underperforming. >> yeah. i mean, when it comes to the supply side of the uk housing market, it really is down to things like change, having a look at the green belt legislation, trying to, you know, incentivize local authorities to watch the yen gauge

"if the pm can casually drop something that was so central to his identity, he can drop anything. #greencrap." that is this prime minister all over. the truth is that any action he takes on the cost of living crisis is because he has been dragged there kicking and screaming. on the cost of living crisis, he is not the solution -- he is the problem. nobody believes that he or his cabinet have any sense of the pressures facing the people of britain. >> i think everyone can recognise a collapse when they see one, and we just saw one right now. is it not interesting? the week before the autumn statement, and he cannot ask about the economy because it is growing, he cannot ask about the deficit because it is falling. he cannot ask about the numbers in work because they are rising. people can see that we have a long-term plan to turn our country around, and people can also see him sitting in his room, desp
